The middle brother quickly donned one of our other size 3T costumes and showed little brother some moves.
Most importantly, he gave him tips on how to fight the bad guys.
Okay, okay, the details: I made the cape long ago, when the biggest brother was the only brother. Actually I made both of them back then. The underoos underwear admittedly were from back then as well. I have saved them for costume purposes but they really should be remade.
I used the Batman jammies as a pattern for the Superman clothes. Like this...
One tip I've learned when you are using clothing as a pattern, cut half of it out and then fold it in half and then cut the rest out, to make sure each side is the same.
After the clothes were made I used fusible web to attach the "S" and then stitched around it.
Littlest brother likes his super suit so much that he is even sleeping in it tonight. He informed Doug, as he was getting ready for bed, that Superman wears "this many underwears" (holding up 2 fingers). I persuaded him that Superman usually hangs up his cape before he goes to bed. Then told me he wanted to watch Superman tomorrow to see if he could see inside his house. I love this cute kid!
One little man ready for Halloween and it's not even October. This is a record for me. Are you getting ready for Halloween yet?
